David Arsenault was born in upstate New York. Since he first began showing his work in 1994, he has had or participated in hundreds of local, regional, and national exhibitions in New York City, Chicago, Vermont, Connecticut, upstate New York, and in Massachusetts: Williamstown, North Adams, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and of course Cape Ann. The Art of David Arsenault Gallery (8 Dock Square) has been situated in downtown Rockport since 2015; he was juried into the Rockport Art Association the following year.

Our Fabulous Live Auction Items:

For Centuries Cape Ann has been "home" to some of America's greatest artists due to its breathtaking landscapes, sense of tradition and colorful/storied past.  The people and places that make up this incredible "island" are dear to Captain Sam's heart and his twilight years have been focused on presenting local businesses and institutions with "Glost-oars".  Gifts which he hopes will help prolong and preserve the ever present sense of pride and appreciation for all things "Glostoar."

The pattern on this hat represents Grace and David’s sailboat, Ladybug, where the first of over four hundred Andean design hats was begun by Grace. When David and Grace met Square dancing was very popular. Grace taught the young folk how in the Village Hall. The young adults of the time including Dave and Grace gathered in the Norton Farm barn on Dennis Court to dance and party

Last year's winners started with Tom's famous shrimp cocktail and charcuterie board.

They feasted on Beef Tenderloin and Faroe Island Salmon along with some delightful Macaroni and Cheese for the vegetarian guests.

For dessert, they enjoyed a Seasonal Berry Tart along with a Lemon Curd Angel Food Cake and a decadent Chocolate Cake.
